Max amps does saddle packs, although i have never tried to put it in that type of car.

I bought the stick pack mount for the T1FK and mounted an Orion 3200 sideways on the chassis. My 4800 fits as well but the belt rubs the case slightly. I had to do some sanding to get the batteries to fit but the result was worth it.........The car is balanced

If you have an FK04 with the stock chassis you can run a stick pack all the way down 1 side and your electronics down the other. This way you'd get pretty good balance without adding alot of weight.

Here's a pic with a NiMh pack but this would work much better with lipos do to thier light weight.

To be honest you are not picking the easiest car or manufacturer to get a LIPO in. Xray does not currently seem to get the direction of the industry. The newest xray 008 is probably the worst car on the market to get a LIPO in. Lets hope their new stuff will fix that!

That's crap dude. The Xray fits a lipo just fine, you just have to pick a battery that fits under the top deck, and there are many options. If anything, the T2 '007 is worse since you have to modify the rear bulkhead or battery to fit one in there, while the '008 took this into consideration and designed the bulkhead to fit a LiPo w/o any requirements. Other than that, I use the factory Xray battery strap with a little double-sided to hold the battery in the chassis.

As for the T1 Fk04, the saddle packs will work perfectly.

Converted a old T1 to lipo's. Tried MaxAmp 4.4 lipo's, mounted with double stick tape, no problem on loosing them. Good for bashing. TrakPower 4800 Saddlebacks are ROAR approved. Just for the heck of it, I'm trying it at a local track this coming weekend.

Thanks for the help. I did convert my car to run stick packs for an enduro race last year although it had perfect balance but the saddle packs seemed to be better in my opinion. I did have at trakpower but the dimensions are just a fraction too big but I will keeping looking thanks for all the input its been great.
